I'm waiting for the front diff to center drive-shaft gear to come from ebay so I was wondering..

What if I just remove the center drive shaft for a few days? The front doesn't roll so well by itself so I was wondering if this is actually believe it or not, harder on the motor?

I should probably remove the pinion gear from the fron bulkhead as well right, that would make it roll easy right?

I'll report back with the differences in handling and such
